From the gorgeous gardens to the friendly staff this little family owned hotel is an incredible find. The owner / operator Armando draws on his vast knowledge of the local history, culture and people to offer amazing extras like Spanish language instruction, Peruvian cooking classes, Pisco tastings, and guided tours of the city. Casa de Avila will also arrange excursions... More

This hotel is inexpensive and advertises itself as a hostel for young backpackers and couples but it is a bit basic to have children staying I suspect. It doubles a language school and it also offers cookery classes. It looks like it has been a cloistered school in the past as it is made up of basic rooms built around... More

Stayed three nights at Casa de Avila in August 2014. Not a luxury hotel, but good value for money. Decent sized rooms, ok breakfast (can order eggs for an extra fee), very good service and located pretty close to Plaza de Armas. Would definitely stay there again.

We stayed here for 3 nights and found it perfect for our needs, it was mid range In price and very cleansing free wifi. It was a short walk away from the centre so it was quiet allowing for a good rest. The beds were comfortable and the shower had plentiful hot water. The only thing they could change would... More

Our bus arrived into Arequipa at 0600 in the morning. Both myself and my travel partner were very very sick. When we arrived at the hotel without a reservation, they had an available room and cleaned it for us. We could hardly stand we were so ill. They allowed us to check in early and passed on the word to... More

I loved staying at this hotel! The room was very nice and clean and the staff were friendly and helpful! We loved spending time in the courtyard and we did the cooking lessons that they offered at the hotel which was very fun! I would highly recommend Casa de Avila!

Lovely staff, soothing courtyard garden with hummingbirds feeding on the blossom while we were there, a very homely ambience. As others say, the rooms are adequate and could do with an upgrade when they have the resources, but I mainly slept well and the staff couldn't do enough. Very nice outdoor dining area. We did the Andean cookery course (2... More

I stayed for 4 nights with a family group as my son got married in Arequipa. The hotel is inexpensive so one can't expect luxury - the rooms are quite basically furnished but clean and the bed was okay. Shower pressure was poor in my room but others said theirs was like a power shower, so maybe rooms on the... More

Very pleasant experience, friendly and helpful staff, clean and comfortable room. Location is awesome, near to Plaza de Armas and almost every other attractions. Very recommended, we would surely go back to that hotel.
